About Me

My Photo


I have started this blog, Southwest Florida Forks, as I want to share my dining and food experiences with you both textually and pictorially.
I love food and photography and it is my hope that through my dining/food/traveling combined with photos I can bring to you an accurate log of my experiences.
A fork can be an eating implement used to pick things up, as well as being a point where something disperses, perfect for a blog.
You can choose to use these postings as a guide, and if not, perhaps just see life through my lens.

Dinner at Citrus

Citrus is a seafood restaurant on 5th Ave. S. in Old Naples. They have been open for about 3 years.

They have a very nice outside dining area great for people watching on 5th avenue. You can also choose to eat indoors, also a great space.

Their menu is interesting and they have a good wine and beer selection.
The owners are big believers in using fresh, local ingredients and it shows. 
They came up with the name for their restaurant as they have always liked citrus notes on their seafood. What better place to appreciate citrus than Florida?

I opted for the fish cakes for an appetizer and they were delicious.

The fish in these cakes was shredded cobia. It is a very firm fish and gave the cakes a really good texture. This dish was also very well complemented with it's topping of pico de gallo (salsa fresca) and a drizzle of lobster oil.

As an entree, my dining companion ordered the crab cake appetizer. These were topped with a citrus remoulade and orange wedges. The citrus zest in the remoulade went really well with this.

I decided on the hogfish entree. It was a really nice presentation with the whole fish on top of a bed of jasmine rice and a medley of corn, roasted red pepper and jicama.
 
To top it all off, the service was excellent. Not only are the servers very attentive but are also very knowledgeable about the food and menu. I would go back without a second thought.

So that's that. Another review on forks.
